  1. Cheap except for the weights like always. #100's going for 140 or more EACH. I see a set of split rears went for $180.
  2. 7.3 PSD in a ford is the same as an IH T444E. But 7.3 PSD uses ford computer to run it vs IH.
  3. Yes, 7.3 V8 used same HEUI style to injector fuel. Lots of wires, sensors, crazy reliable, no injection pump. As for the quart of oil it's no big deal on them. Willing to bet 99.9% of them never got the oil sucked out of the reservoir during an oil change.
  4. Day late and a dollar short but here are pics of mine. I think the only thing it worked good on was small pieces of super dry wood. My outdoor stove is huge and has a draft fan, so I almost never split wood.
  5. I own 1 of those, it was given to me by an old coworker. 1 spring is bad so 1 wedge wants to stay out, it's worthless like that. It's just wall art to me now.
  6. My loadstar has a 20 foot box, its been lengthened. Inside frame rail is straight up/down weld, outer is straight up/down weld, just staggered 3 feet. Guessing it's been like this since the 70's when it was built. Edit to add, outer frame is the upside down L as mentioned, inner is C channel frame. Appears to be factory based on holes drilled and huck bolts everywhere.
  7. Driveshaft length is a factor of shaft size and vice versa. 6' seams to be the max, I've seen trucks with 3 shafts to keep length down. There's charts online that calculate shaft length, size of tube, and max safe RPM.
  8. So do mine, although they do make it to local shows too. But for only $30 more I don't have to look at a tacky aftermarket gauge. Plus where would I mount the planter monitor.
  9. Farmall shop in Marengo IA fixes them.
  10. Friend of mine owns a Federal, he swapped in a bone stock 5.9 Cummins. Pretty sweet truck and it fit pretty good. I had him haul a tractor to a local show for me this summer. Here's a pic of his federal with my 856, and my Ford with the IH 806.
  11. I have one of those. It's never the same as elevator, how do you calibrate it?
  12. I pull that 11 shank Glencoe with my 165hp fwa. The two wheel 5088 would never touch it, just spin. We used to pull a 10 shank IH with disc gangs with the weighted down 5088 but the IH is way lighter than the Glencoe. I'd bet 7 is all you could pull with an mx 120 weighted down hard
  13. I go at a good angle to the rows with the chisel plow, 10 degrees maybe, you can see it in my pic. then i go at about half the original angle in the spring with the field cultivator. Seams to help with plugging less vs going with the rows. Then I get really OCD and try to go at the opposite 10 degree angle next year to help avoid ridges.
  14. You said you tried a chisel plow and it was a mess, what exactly happened? Did it plug constantly or was it too muddy??? Here where we have hills a disc is a terrible idea, never fails we get a rain in Jan and the top 3-4" that the disc moved all washes down the hill, washout stops right at disc depth. Corn residue management starts at the corn head on the combine, you want the residue as small as possible right off the head. My thought is instead of spending big money on tillage equipment to bury corn, I'll spend good money on a good corn head first. Here in the heavy clay and cold falls it's very important to size corn residue at the corn head. then wait for the residue to dry a few days in the sun and then get after it with the Glenco chisel plow. Oddly the best chiseling jobs I've ever done were after a dusting of snow, realy seams to bury trash good with the snow mixed in.
  15. Basicly same setup the 88 series and magnums have. I return my hydraulic planter motors there, but it's factory-installed on our 5088
  16. I thought there was a check valve or thermostat valve in the cooler, but I must be mistaken.
  17. I know it's important to get them hooked up correctly where they come off the MCV. So which line is out to cooler and which is return for lube circuit? I can't find anything in the book on the MCV or cooler?
  18. What is running the PS? Did the 450's have a separate reservoir?
  19. Looks to me like Tenneco made some pretty good decisions. keep the revolution axial flow combine exactly as built by IH all the way till they sold out. Keep the legendary powershift 16 speed exactly as IH built it up until the end. Of course they were going to use their own engine, the IH motors didn't come with the sale. Many other products stayed exactly as IH built them. They got rid of money sucking products that were never going to be a success and focus money on products farmers wanted. And if Tenneco wasn't making these decisions, who was? You can't say it was Case, because Case was dead in 1967.
  20. You need to go 1 direction,and by looking at pics your going the wrong direction. I always have way better luck in down beans going opposite of the way they fell.
  21. Found a good 1 for you. https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/823639262760690/?ref=browse_tab 3208 TURBO, 13 speed.
  22. How do the hydraulic reversers work? Is it still a chain and flywheel setup like the electric ones or completely different, I've never seen one.
  23. 446 gas max RPM 3500. 7.3 PSD, max RPM 3375..... looks like it'll work just fine.
  24. Roads here will do it when it gets hot, 90+ and lots of sun in the summer.
  25. My 1975, 1800 will be getting a 7.3 Powerstroke this winter. No room for a long I6 unless you want to fab a huge dog house, then the trans shifter will be at the back wall. I have a complete truck with the 7.3 so I've got all the wiring, plus the psd has a vacuum pump to run the brakes. Downside is the PSD will still be WAY underpowered for 500+ bushel twin screw, but at least it'll be a diesel with way for torque.
